Estranged Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Jahangir Khan Tareen and his group have reportedly been offered development funds if they withdraw their demand to remove Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar.
Ge News quoted sources as saying that Punjab Education Minister Murad Raas had a meeting with Nauman Langrial and Abdu Havi Dasti, members of the Tareen group, about their grievances.
The provincial minister is said to have made a phone call to Defence Minister Pervez Khattak who joined Rass in assuring the Tareen group that the development funds would be released at the earliest.
The news report further claimed that both estranged lawmakers expressed their reservations about the government departments in their conversation with the defence minister.
While they were assured that their grievances would be addressed, the estranged leaders of the ruling party said that they cannot make a decision without first consulting with Jahangir Tareen and other members of their group.
